Former President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalized as a precaution after experiencing "shortness of breath," his office confirmed early Wednesday.
Earlier, local media quoted his chief of staff as saying the 41st president was expected to go home from Houston Methodist Hospital in a few days.
"He's there. He's fine and he's doing really well," the Houston Chronicle quoted Bush chief of staff Jean Becker as saying.
A statement later released by his office said the 92-year-old Bush was "being monitored as a precaution and is resting comfortably."
Bush, who served as U.S. president from 1989 to 1993, has a form of Parkinson's disease and uses a motorized scooter or a wheelchair for mobility. He was hospitalized in Maine in 2015 after falling at his summer home and breaking a bone in his neck. In December 2014 he was hospitalized in Houston for about a week for shortness of breath. Previous to those stays he spent Christmas 2012 in intensive care for a bronchitis-related cough and other issues.
Despite the loss of mobility, he celebrated his 90th birthday by making a tandem parachute jump in Kennebunkport. Last summer, Bush led a group of 40 wounded warriors on a fishing trip at the helm of his speedboat, three days after his 92nd birthday celebration.Read More...
